‘Mystery company’ buying up U.S. gun manufacturers

The Freedom Group is now the most powerful force in the U.S. commercial gun industry today. They have quickly and quietly acquired notable gun brands such as Bushmaster, DPMS, and Remington Arms. Yet, nobody has ever heard of it.
Even within gun groups, the question is being asked: What is the Freedom Group?
A quick search of news on the Freedom Group reveals that what little has been written about them has only been written in recent weeks. A Wikipedia article lists the following companies as being owned by Freedom Group: Remington Arms, Bushmaster Firearms International, DPMS Panther Arms, Marlin, H & R Firearms, NEF, Dakota Arms, LC Smith, Parker, Advanced Armament Corporation, Barnes Bullets, EOTAC, INTC.
Due to the current political climate, as well as the fast and quiet nature of the Freedom Group acquiring so many large firearms companies, speculation has easily gravitated toward worst-case scenarios.
Rumors drifting along the Internet suggest the Freedom Group is being used in a government plot to disarm the American people. Other rumors suggest the Freedom Group is one of George Soros’s many front companies, and that he is seeking to corner the gun market for his owns ends.
However, the Freedom Group is owned by Cerberus Capital Management. Cerberus is a private firm that counts Dan Quayle has one of its prominent spokespersons. Quayle even runs one of its international units.
Moreover, Cerberus was founded by Steve Feinberg, who is fairly “right wing.” The company counts former U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld as a past client. Therefor, it would seem unlikely that the Freedom Group is secretly an anti-freedom group, scheming against gun ownership. Besides, I doubt that so many gun manufacturers would sell out to a company if that company even seemed to be part of an anti-gun scheme.
While the group is definitely operating with an honest-to-goodness profit motive, and isn’t some Soros scheme to disarm America, there’s still room to theorize about Freedom Group. A lack of information can speak volumes.
Perhaps this isn’t a plot to remove the guns from America; but, rather, Freedom Group is an effort to preserve gun manufacturers. There is strength in numbers; and this could be an effort to pool together business and legal resources out of concern about the future of gun ownership in the United States.
In other words, if Freedom Group is part of a conspiracy, it’s a conspiracy to protect the private class from the political class.
